Discrete mathematics is awesome?

Yes, after an year, I finally decided to take Discrete mathematics again as a part of my university. Tbh, I didn't really enjoy it when I came across it a year back. But, now I feel like it's somehow helping me to think in a logical way. And, I also found a good playlist for learning it. If you ever want to jump in to this business, this will help  . That's the playlist. I thanked him via twitter for this. If you are bored, I think this will fill / blow your mind. Hmm.. if free take a look. Btw, I've few things to say about YouTube and why I might leave it soon...

TA-1053 NOKIA Mini Flash guide

The way I did everything to Nokia TA-1053 Stock Android 7 Updated to Android 9 Downgraded to Android 7 (for bootloader unlocking) Upgraded to Android 9 (after unlocking) Flashed twrp (shitty thing I've ever done) Rooted with magisk.  ----- If your stock recovery is overwritten, sadly, you cannot install any OTA. Can't you do ever? Well, yes you can. But, you have to; Downgrade to Stock (7.1) Unlock bootloader (if needed) Install all available OTA to Android 9 including July security patch Flash Magisk (if needed) I don't think HMD Global will rollout Android 10 for us. Security patch will be okay. Again, if you are going to flash twrp , make sure to backup your stock recovery before messing. It means a lot! If you're using Linux like me, use Heimdall. 

Persistent start is important!

When I started blogging, I was changing my domain frequently. I wasn't satisfied  with any. Finally, I fixed to go with domain. And, I used it for very long time. Made few pages to promote that blog. I was passionate about blogging at that time more than now. For some reason, I couldn't continue doing blogging. So, after very long time, here I'm am. Changed domain again to bensh4. I really liked this username and I sorta wanted to make this everywhere. That's why I again changed to bensh4. I was worried about AdSense because of this continuous changing. Because I stopped blogging then, I didn't bother about that much. My advice for a new blogger(or any starter) would be like; You have to be really sure about what you're doing and will do. Choose something (username for eg:) and don't tend to change it.  ༼ つ ◕‿◕ ༽つ Good luck for you!

Thinking about leaving Twitter 🤔

It is now that I'm realising that there's so much noise in Twitter. Still I'm staying in Twitter for some reason that I cannot explain. I can post my thoughts via this blog even if I leave that platform. But, I'm only thinking. But, I'll leave one day for sure. Because, think for a while, "why do we need that platform?". For sharing our thoughts and ideas? That's why we can have our own blog. That's how I'm believe. Back in the days, it was awesome to see many blogs  like people writing their daily diary  . Now everybody is via twitter and others. Well.. there are many things to say. May be my first Episode of podcast will be subjecting this. Anyways, thanks to be here. Good luck for you!

I learned not to run my nginx as root

I'm mostly using Android to do my daily stuffs than my laptop. But when I start to use laptop, I'll rarely use my phone. 🙃 I was running nginx in Termux on port 80 some reason. Since SeLinux feature is set as permissive, it's not stopping me from doing that. So to start server with that port, I must be root. So, I start nginx as root , which means now it has the role of root. It's like a real root user in my host which can access my host files and what not. So, atleast a docker is more appreciated to run it. Or more abstractions are possible via Selinux, Apparmor or Firejail those can have custom profiles for more security. And, I found a good article >  here  <. It's a Medium article.  Happy leaning! 😉
